What you need to know:
- Lambda sensors determine the concentration of oxygen present in the engine’s exhaust gas and sends signal voltage to the engine control unit in order to regulate deviations from the desired air-fuel ratio.
- The chemically optimal ratio in a petrol engine is 14.7 kg air to 1 kg gasoline (Lambda = 1). This precisely controlled mixture affords trouble-free processing by the catalytic converter.
- Signs of a faulty lambda sensor include higher fuel consumption, illumination of the engine malfunction indicator light and unsatisfactory exhaust analysis values.
- Malfunctioning lambda sensors result in increased Fuel consumption of the and decreasing engine performance, and can lead to costly damage to the catalytic converter.
- Reasons for lambda sensors wearing out include poor fuel quality, rust and oil residues in the exhaust gas, thermal shock, material fatigue due to engine vibration, and mechanically or chemically caused damage (i.e. road chips, dirt or salt).
- Genuine lambda sensors include a power supply connector, an unaltered protective tube design and a custom-molded hose.
Opt for the Genuine Part because:
- Genuine lambda sensors ensure the consistency of exhaust quality, while ensuring low Fuel consumption of the and optimum engine performance.
- They feature a universal cable length, which where necessary can be shortened using the supplied cable ties. This has enabled a reduction in product range variants, thus simplifying ordering and inventory management.
- Stockpiling is expedient, due to the low number of product variants. This in turn makes it possible to optimize order volumes and achieve high inventory turnover.
- They contribute to environmental protection by reducing, in conjunction with catalytic converters, harmful exhaust emissions and by preventing the emission of hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide.
